For UNESCO, Cultural heritage in Kosovo is Serbian
Tadic: For UNESCO, Cultural heritage in Kosovo is Serbian
June 4, 2009
Serbian President Boris Tadic stated that UNESCO General Director Koiciro Macura supports Belgrade’s stance that nobody has the right to usurp the Serbian cultural heritage in Kosovo. During the break at the summit of heads of the Balkan states in Cetinje, Tadic specified that Macura convinced him that at the next UNESCO session in Seville, it will be defined that the Orthodox cultural heritage in Kosovo is the heritage of the Serbian people. Serbia will always insist on it which is why I underlined in talks that the so-called state of Kosovo exists in Pristina’s plans for 13-14 months, while the cultural heritage of the Serbian people in Kosovo has been existing for centuries, said Tadic. He pointed that the Serbian state existed in Kosovo even at the time when its cultural heritage was generated in that region and which became part of the global cultural heritage. According to Tadic, the Serbian cultural heritage should have positive impact on all that want to accept it, but that nobody has the right to usurp it as if its their property.
